The bottle is then riddled, so that the lees settles in the neck of the wine bottle...

I am informed that some four hundred years ago in the late 16th century there took place the "Cologne War", a conflict in central Europe in which people apparently struggled to see who could smell prettier.

I find myself disappointed that I did not learn this particular bit of history from my professor emetic, the Smutty one. I'm sure the woodcuts would have been enlightening...
